Title: What is PSIA
Post by: admin on July 11, 2011, 12:55:35 pm
PSIA is a competing open standard for Network Video devices.

PSIA stands for  Physical Security Interoperability Alliance

PSIA looks like the people who weren't invited to the ONVIF party looked at their specs, and went hmm, then implemented something better.

PSIA uses REST instead of SOAP, so its a lot smaller sizewise for implementing from a client perspective.
No SOAP XML verboseness for a start!

PSIA site is here - (

Unfortunately they're less open than ONVIF with their documents, so nothing freely available for the moment.
